An Atlanta team joins the second season of the Overwatch League



The Overwatch League will welcome a new North American team to Atlanta, according to Jacob Wolf of ESPN.

That's hot from Wolf's confirmation of the teams from Paris and Guangzhou a few days ago. The teams in Atlanta, Paris and Guangzhou are three out of six previously confirmed expansion teams joining the league in the second season.

Unlike the teams in Paris and Guangzhou, Wolf reports that the Atlanta agreement is complete. They are the first team to complete their plans to participate in the second season of the Overwatch League.

Allegedly, the buy-in costs for an expansion team range from $ 30 million to $ 60 million, depending on various factors and the region.

Earlier, it was reported that the first season's teams paid around $ 20 million for their place, so the second season's price increase is substantial.

The Atlanta Teamspot was reportedly owned by Cox Enterprises, a conglomerate. The Overwatch League is the first Cox Enterprises investment in any esport.

Wolf also reports that a representative of Cox Enterprises was present at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn at the Grand Finals of the Overwatch League on Friday

The Atlanta team would be one of two new teams for the second season based in the United States, as described by Pete Vlastelica CEO of Esports Leagues of Activision Blizzard.

With a team in Paris, Guangzhou and Atlanta confirmed by ESPN, three places remain of the six expansion teams for season two; another in the United States, one more in Europe and one more in the Asia-Pacific region.

The player signing phase for expansion teams is approaching, so look out for an official confirmation in the coming weeks. [196592002] The featured image for this post was created by Robert Paul by Blizzard Entertainment.
